When a keyword is only applied to some images in a Variant group or a selection of images, a minus sign (-) will appear on the left side of the keyword in the Keywords tool. Pressing (X) will remove the keyword from those images that contain that particular keyword within the selection.
- Go the Metadata tool tab and select the Keywords tool.
- Select the image(s) to remove the keywords from.
- In the Keyword tool, navigate to the keyword and press the (X) icon that appears on the right side.
- Repeat the same actions to remove other keywords.
TIP: To quickly remove all keywords from an image or variants that have been added from within Capture One only, select the images and use the local reset function located on the Keyword tool's title bar.
When keywords originate from within XMP sidecar files, they can only be removed from an image or a variant by pressing (X) on each keyword individually. This state is temporary with XMP. The keywords can be reapplied using the Keyword tool’s local reset function.
